Enjoy A Tour of Shinjuku Night Life! The World’s Best Downtown Area

合計時間 : 5 hours

What To Expect

Shinjuku is Japan's largest shopping district and has long prospered as a transportation hub.
"Shinjuku", which means "New Inn" when translated to English, was a literal lodging area on the road between Edo Castle and the countryside.
The area has flourished not only because of the foot traffic, but also because of the dining experience and nightlife that has persisted since that time.
Even now, there are many luxury hotels and eateries from high-level restaurants to standing bars.
The number of people passing through Shinjuku Station itself is around 3.5 million daily, including railways, making Shinjuku the busiest city in the world.

The West Exit has an Office District with many skyscrapers and houses the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.
The East Exit is home to Kabuki-cho, which is famous for its Entertainment District, and also many restaurants and retail stores including Isetan Shinjuku, the highest-selling department store in Japan.

Because of its history of welcoming many people, Shinjuku is a city that everyone can feel free to enjoy, whether they are residents, workers, shoppers, or tourists."

This is a nighttime tour of Shinjuku, where you will see a different side of the city compared to the Office District and Shopping District of Shinjuku during the day.
Of the many famous locations, I will introduce you to especially recommended ventures based on my experience working in Shinjuku for many years.

1. Meet up at the Starbucks Coffee in Diane Shinjuku Building. I will explain the day's itinerary here.

2. Spectate the 3D pop-up Cat Visual Board at the Shinjuku East Exit.

Guide
I am a former hotelier that worked in the Food and Beverage Department for 15 years.
Currently, I am working as a training instructor.

My main hobby is trying foods at various eateries. In particular, I like alcohol.
"No alcohol, no life".
I favor alcohol so much that I even once managed a yakitori restaurant.
I am a food enthusiast that loves to ponder over compatibility and combinations between food and alcohol all-year round.

Up till now, I have been working in Shinjuku for more than 10 years. I stop by various places on my way home from work and consider Shinjuku to be my own backyard.

I want more people to know about my beloved Shinjuku.
In particular, I want people from both Japan and abroad to know how to better enjoy such deep places like Omoide Yokocho, Golden Gai | Golden Block, and Area 2 of the Shinjuku District known as Ni-Chōme.
We will guide you through rich spaces that even Japanese people have rarely set foot in.
